A combination of physical movement and counselling is already having success in Sutherland Shire, psychologists say.

At Walk Different Cronulla, mental health experts are seeing positive results in their patients by utilisinga ‘walk and talk’ service for people in need.

They say a 20 minute walk outside can help relieve the symptoms of depression.

Mental illness affects one in five Australians.

This month (October 10) marksWorld Mental Health Day, which recognises the significance of promoting healthy communities.

The theme of this year’s event is ‘psychological first aid’.

Walk Different psychologist Biance Veage says a basic activity like walking is a non-confronting approach to tackling mental health.

“People benefit from expressing their feelings by getting out in the sun,” she said.

“It’s particularly attracting younger clients who find it appealing to just hang out at the beach for a chat.

“Anxiety and panic attacks are quite prevalent in our area, and with the cost of living going up, we are seeing lots of the younger generation experience this.

“We want to get rid of that stigma of the typical idea of sitting in a psychologist’s office and taking notes, which also makes it more of a relaxed process for a health professional.”
